Today, I decided that I would post about making one of my favorite breakfast recipes that is healthy and delicious!! Ever since I was diagnosed with diabetes, I have made a big effort to eating healthy and taking care of myself, so I have gone through a lot of recipes to find food that I like. This is one of my favorites: banana strawberry muffins. Here’s the recipe (and a picture of them!):
1 cup of milk
1 tbsp baking powder
3 cups of oats (or flour)
2 cups of strawberries (cut)
½ cup of honey
1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas.
3. Mix in the milk, eggs, baking powder and vanilla.
4. Slowly add in the oats and chopped strawberries.
5. Divide into baking cups, filling about 3/4 full.
6. Bake for 25 minutes.
Something I like about eating muffins (especially when you make them) is that you can easily prepare food for many days or for many people. They are also really delicious! Is there something that you like to make for breakfast, lunch, or dinner that is easy to make and that can be made in a big quantity? Or what is your favorite recipe, and how can you make it a little more ‘diabetic-friendly’?
